The 18-year-old striker scored the game-winning goal in Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Fulham in the 15th round of the Premier League, and Alejandro Garnacho celebrated in Messi fashion.
Alejandro Garnacho, according to Vn88, scored his first Premier League goal in the 93rd minute to give Man Utd a win over Fulham.
After 90 minutes of play, with the score still knotted at 1, Man Utd scored an incredible 2-1 win when Alejandro Garnacho worked well with Christian Eriksen and finished neatly into the far corner.
Garnacho did not do his usual Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired celebration after scoring an emotional goal. Instead, he ran up the flagpole in the corner, stripped down to his underwear, and imitated Lionel Messi’s iconic celebration.
The moment the Argentine superstar scored the game-winning goal in Barcelona’s 3-2 come-from-behind victory at the Bernabeu in April of 2017. C.Ronaldo replicated the same celebration after tearing Barcelona at Camp Nou the following season.
In the second half of stoppage time, Alejandro Garnacho (18 years, 135 days) scored the game-winning goal for Manchester United against Aston Villa (17 years, 226 days) to become the Premier League’s youngest player to do so since Federico Macheda (17 years, 226 days) in April 2009.
Man Utd found and promoted another talented striker from the Carrington base camp after they had already done so with Mason Greenwood. In 7 games this season across all competitions, Garnacho has helped contribute to 4 goals for Man Utd (2 goals, 2 assists).
Christian Eriksen is yet another Man Utd player to “open an account” of a goal in the 2022–23 Premier League season. After Bruno Fernandes set up the first goal in the 14th minute, the Danish midfielder finished it off with a soft touch. Vn88.cx claims that Eriksen is the first Dane to score for Man Utd since Peter. Schmeichel in 1995.
This was Eriksen’s 250th Premier League game, so his goal had extra significance as he prepared to fly to Qatar with the rest of the Danish national team to compete in the World Cup 2022.
